The High Expedition is a Talkeetna Recreational Marijuana Dispensary
The High Expedition is proud to open the ultimate cannabis destination experience for curious marijuana customers in Talkeetna and beyond, carrying top-shelf Alaskan cannabis products grown in house and by local Alaskan providers. More than an average retail store, The High Expedition’s mission is to align cannabis with the legacy of Talkeetna mountaineer Ray Genet, the outdoors, and overcoming insurmountable odds.
Preparing for opening on May 1st, 2017, the High Expedition has spent years readying their dispensary shop to serve the cannabis community of Talkeetna locals and visitors from around the globe. The owner always was fascinated with cannabis and its potential as a plant and movement, and when Alaska began its petition to legalize recreational consumption, he threw his efforts into advocating and advancing marijuana’s cause. As he worked, he realized he needed to be a part of this budding industry, and knew his home of Talkeetna was the perfect site for a dispensary.
Friends with the son of Ray Genet, the famous mountain man who climbed 30 peaks in 10 years, the founder of The High Expedition was able to build his retail dispensary in Genet’s old mountain climbing guided tours building. He was inspired by the legacy of this man, daring to do the impossible when naysayers tried to stop him. The High Expedition continues that legacy, overcoming the odds and climbing heights to prove to the world cannabis’ benefits, positive potential, and true place in active, healthy lifestyles.
Upon opening, The High Expedition will showcase locally crafted Alaskan marijuana products, carrying goods ranging from flower and edibles to concentrates. As they grow, their dispensary plans on vertically integrating, introducing their line of marijuana products in addition to showcasing their vendor partners’. They plan on prioritizing their offering of high-CBD products, for customers in search of strains with more medicinal benefits. The High Expedition’s retail dispensary also will showcase local Talkeetna glassware, as well as offer rolling papers, glass pipes, vaporizers and other cannabis accessories.
The High Expedition gladly accepts both cash and card transactions at their dispensary, in addition to a local's discount for Talkeetna residents. Curious cannabis customers can connect with the High Expedition online, on Facebook or Instagram, or by calling or emailing in advance. They offer a designated parking lot for their dispensary customers, with handicap spaces and an ADA-accessible ramp to serve all clients.
Located along the main road in Talkeetna, The High Expedition experience is in the foothills of the Denali State Park. They invite visitors from nearby Susitna North, Chase, Petersville, Trapper Creek, Skwentna, Willow, Fishhook and Meadow Lakes to their retail store, as well as travelers journeying to Alaska via Anchorage, Cantwell, Susitna, Wasilla, Palmer, Big Lake and the regions surrounding Denali.
Talkeetna is a major tourist hub in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough of Alaska, located at the confluence of the Susitna, Talkeetna, and Chulitna rivers. Over one hundred years old, Talkeetna’s downtown is classified as a National Historic Site, drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Talkeetna is an expedition base for Denali hikers looking to climb Mt. Mickenly, flying climbers in through the TAlkeenta Airport strip. From the Aurora Dora to the Susitna Salmon Center, the High Expedition proudly looks forward to serving their cannabis customers.
was in Talkeetna for lunch and decided to check out the shop in "downtown". awesome little cabin. deli style. asked if they had the strain I wanted in a pre roll. they didn't....but the dude behind the counter offered to make me a .5g pre roll. that has never been offered to me in any other shop. I felt at home right away. the staff knew what they were talking about. and they didn't take themselves to seriously. loved it
I live in NY, but visited The High Expedition while on vacation this past summer (July '17.) It was my first time ever stepping foot in a dispensary, and I was extremely nervous not knowing what to expect. The second I walked in, I immediately felt a rush of good vibes & absolutely loved the atmosphere; everything from the decorating to the lighting felt cozy & inviting. I was immediately greeted by an incredibly friendly & compassionate employee who was more than happy to answer all of my questions and explain things in a really clear way. I can't speak highly enough of him & the other 2 employees I interacted with during my visit. I explained that I wanted something that wouldn't make me too anxious & was also discreet. I ended up buying 1g of Alaska OG Kush shatter & a dab pen. I didn't even know what shatter was before I walked in, & by the time I left I had learned enough to be able to go back to my hotel & load up a dab to vape. The cannabis was as high quality as their service.
Awesome shop. Great employees. Super helpful. Grabbed a sweet pre-roll & everyone I was with bought a hoodie. Or two. :)
Great atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff. Awesome history. This place is legit. definitely worth stopping by. Thanks to Sean and the Tall bearded dude, didn't catch your name. Cool people. Thanks guys. 420Stars
